Washington vetoes on sale   of Israeli-made unmanned air vehicles to Russia. The latter also encompasses locally assembly agreements.

Moscow has previously purchased 10 «Searcher 2» and 30 «BirdEye-450» UAVs from Israel Aerospace Industries.

Russia has adopted the IAI “Searcher” UAV and manufactures this Israeli product under license as the “Forpost”, based on a subsequent production design designated as “Searcher II” which is an improved Second Generation model introduced by IAI in 1998.

“Forpost” and «BirdEye-450» UAV are manufactured by Russian company JSC “Ural Works of Civil Aviation”.
